Huerco S. practices minimal, lo-fi synth pop on the track "Prinzif" from his new effort Colonial Patterns, out September 24 via Mexican Summer's Sofware imprint. It's second track from the album to see the light of day and resembles early Washed Out. You can stream it and its predecessor "Quivira (Reprise)" below.
Huerco S is scheduled to play the final PS1 Warm-Up of the season this Saturday (9/7, tickets) and then will hit 285 Kent later that same night to team with Madteo, Matthewdavid, Anenon and A Pleasure. Tickets are still available.
Outside of those dates, look for Huerco S. to join names like Zola Jesus, The Orb, Nicolas Jaar and many esteemed others at the Decibel Festival in Seattle at the end of September. Huerco S. replaced The Haxan Cloak who cancelled, and is playing an XLR8R showcase with Evian Christ. Full lineup for that festival and that stream is below.

FACT is still one of the best sources for cutting edge electronic music, and I always look forward to their top 50 albums of the year list, which they've just published for 2012. As usual, it doesn't only contain electronic albums.
This year's list has a good deal of indie rap (Haleek Maul, Schoolboy Q, Le1f, Main Attrakionz, Spaceghostpurrp) and it's the only non-metal list I've seen so far with Black Breath's Sentenced to Life (!). And of course, to compliment the dancefloor records, it's got its fair share of electronic-tinged indie pop, forward thinking R&B, and outsider experimental music.
Check out the full list below.
